Workers' Compensation: Helping Injured Workers In Ohio

The last thing you should have to worry about when you're on the clock is your safety. Unfortunately, all it takes is one small error with a bench grinder, a head-on collision with the company vehicle or being under a poorly secured load at the wrong time, and your life can change forever.

The lawyers at Elk & Elk Co., Ltd., help victims of work-related injuries and illnesses get the benefits they deserve.

Did your employer try to deny you benefits? We can help.

There were more than 1 million non-fatal workplace injuries and illnesses in 2009 and more than 4,300 fatal workplace injuries, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Although workplace injuries often lead to lost wages, medical bills and other expenses, we see many cases where employers try to avoid paying workers' compensation benefits. In other cases, the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) will deny a legitimate workers' compensation claim. This makes it very difficult for injured victims to pick up the pieces of their lives.

Without compensation for your injuries, putting your life back together after a workplace accident can be overwhelming. For experienced representation from lawyers dedicated to getting you the help you need, call 937-353-4305 to schedule a free consultation.

We will pursue the compensation you need after a serious workplace injury

Under workers' compensation laws, employees who were injured or disabled as a result of their jobs are entitled to monetary awards. Dependents of workers who are killed in work-related accidents or illnesses are also entitled to benefits.

Whether you were injured at work or lost a loved one in a job-related accident, you can trust a firm like Elk & Elk to protect your rights and make sure you receive the benefits you are entitled to by law. You will have a team of attorneys, accountants, economists, investigators, consultants and other experts by your side.

Over 50 years of experience helping injured workers

At Elk & Elk, our goal is to find justice for you and your family after a workplace accident. With more than 50 years of experience, we have the knowledge and skills to help you file workers' compensation claims and obtain the benefits you deserve.

Because workers' compensation does not provide compensation for pain and suffering, our attorneys will evaluate your situation to determine whether you have a valid claim against a third part, for an intentional tort or a safety violation.
